Sixty-eight years keepering at Brinsop Court, Herefordshire. "An octogenarian gamekeeper - 68 years on one Herefordshire estate - paints a vivid picture of his childhood, his experience of the Great War and his varied duties in the service of several masters. While explaining the necessity of his calling and describing its rigours and many personal dramas, he warns of rural life and of the hazards that accompany mechanisation. A Conservative through and through, he tells us why, in language both forthright and robust."
